Checked netstat -natp
Saw that cups was still listening on localhost only.
Checked /etc/cups/ file and saw that nothing was there that I had put in.
Restarted tool, repeated steps
Redid the changes and put in /24 instead. Saw this get changed to 255.255.255.0
Cups began listening on all networks.

There are two unrelated issues here:
1. That sharing a queue did not work, and
2. That your printer is not automatically detected
This is number 2.
What's the full printer model name of this device?
Tim you are the reporter of this bug. Are you asking this question to yourself?
Apparently, yes. Added CC for the person I meant to ask.
Just to repeat: what's the full printer model name of this device?
Hi. I don't think I'm the correct person for this bug. I don't have a Brother
Derek: my apologies. I added you because you were on the CC list for bug
#187703; in fact I should have added the reporter of that bug instead (now done).
